Tiffany Haddish Power Your Happy Interview

The First Thing Tiffany Haddish Does When She Wakes Up Is a Little TOO Relatable

It's hard not to love Tiffany Haddish. The 38-year-old comedian and actress has stolen many hearts with her breakout role in 2017's Girls Trip, and she hasn't returned it since. Whether it's making us laugh on Saturday Night Live or being a relatable human by repeating outfits in public, we simply can't get enough of Tiffany.

It's also part of the reason we're so excited to welcome her to our weekend-long festival, POPSUGAR Play/Ground, this June. Tiffany will join us (and bring the laughs) while speaking on a panel about carving her own path to success. Before then, we caught up with the funny woman, who shared with us how she powers her happy. Trust us, you'll cry laughing at her hilarious answers ahead.
